Abstract— The paper presents the process of modifying the chassis of an electric vehicle of the Silesian Greenpower team based on 3D scanning technology. Principles of 3D scanning technology using Kinect 3D have been described, as well as preparation of the scans of the driver to optimize the geometry of the chassis. The driver has been scanned in various driving positions in order to establish the most ergonomic one. The geometry of the chassis has been modified according to the scanned convenient driving position and the newest technical regulations. The research allowed to improve the vehicle’s behavior on the corners, to reduce the frontal cross-section analyze the mass center of the driver.
